Even if I agree that he needs to work on his stamina and fitness the truth is that his record in matches that went to 5 sets is actually good.
Itīs overall 7-3 and it was 3-0 last year, he has won the last 4 matches that went to 5 sets.
Itīs usual on young unexperienced players to lose 5 sets matches but in his first year as a top player he won all of the 3 matches that went to 5 sets. So I think people need to stop assuming that he is going to lose some match if it goes to 5 sets. The truth is he is mentally strong and gaining experience so he is tough to beat in 5 sets too, thatīs also what the stats say.
These are all the 5 sets matches of his career (starting with the most recent ones):
